C&A, C&A Foundation and Save the Children have joined forces to provide support and relief on the ground to those who are the most vulnerable in crisis situations: children. As partners, we are united in our belief that safety, justice and comfort for children and their families can only be achieved through sustainable and lasting change.
An annual funding of EUR 3.36 million by C&A Foundation ensures that Save the Children has the flexibility to respond to emergencies and offer relief where it is needed the most, and run long-term programmes improving the lives of millions of children. In addition to this fixed amount of funding, we involve both employees and C&A customers to support the partnership through in-store donation boxes in select countries across Europe and cause-related initiatives.

Three Partners - One Mission

The scope of the partnership includes humanitarian relief activities providing life-saving aid during and in the aftermath of emergencies, as well as disaster preparedness supporting children and the communities they live in to withstand and recover from stress. Since the launch of the partnership in 2015, we have been able to help reach more than 8 million people, 4 million of whom are children.
As we move into the next phase, we continue our work with a focus on the physical and emotional well-being of children and the support of Child Friendly Spaces set up by Save the Children. These are protected environments for children to overcome their trauma and return to a sense of normality through play, socialisation and informal education.
